Retroreflector at the Milwaukee Psych Fest on May 10, 2024

Here is a group formed by Milwaukee guitarist Andrew Trim which is at least partly a result of a recent trend of closer cooperation between Chicago and Milwaukee jazz musicians. This trend is fueled by Trim's roots in the Chicago jazz scene and such Milwaukee stalwarts as percussionist Devin Drobka and trumpet maestro Russ Johnson playing often with groups in Chicago.


When I first heard Andrew's album last year, I thought its jazzy psychedelia would be a tremendous fit for the Psych Fest and was very glad when I saw that the band would be the first to play inside the Cooperage for this year's festival. This performance included local bassist Barry Paul Clark as well as Chicago jazz stalwarts Daniel Van Duerm and Jeremy Cunningham.


Regular readers of this blog will remember our recent recording of Trim's unusual Japan-inspired group Hanami.
